City of Tonganoxie Newsletter - Spring 2023

Public Safety Updates

The Tonganoxie Police Department (TPD) has a strong commitment to the Community Oriented Policing Philosophy, which we believe is reflected in the City earning the distinction as the #2 safest City in the State of Kansas, as recognized by SafeWise. That is not to say the community doesn't face challenges, but TPD's emphasis on Community Oriented Policing helps to curb issues with strong community engagement. In light of the horrific national issues relating to school violence, TPD has invested great time and effort in acquiring training for our Officers' response to an active assailant in our schools. Last August, TPD hosted multiple school mini-sessions with teachers, presenting

information about safety protocols. Additionally, TPD sponsored an anti- drug (fentanyl) school assembly, in an attempt to educate prevention on this drug's dangerous exposure. How to Contact your City Council members
